Owning a supercar from Ferrari, Aston Martin, Jaguar is like a dream come true! Unfortunately! The higher price tag is one of the factors that could never let us have our hands-on. When we talk about the expensive car in the world, this means that they are rare to find and limited to rich and powerful people. For those wealthy gearheads, a car is not just a means of conveyance, but to get an industry-lead technology with a ludicrous amount of speed. It is quite difficult to list out the most expensive cars in the world as the price stays under the wraps and are being sold out before it reaches the public. This is the reason why they end up with higher prices than original in auctions. Here, let us have a look at the list of most expensive cars in the world that are existing and understand why they cost so much.
With the selling price of $19 million after taxes, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is the most expensive car ever. It uses the same quad-turbo 8-liter W16 engine as in the Bugatti Chiron which produces 1479 horsepower and 1600 Newton-meters of torque. This black elegant model is a perfect combination of technology, speed, aesthetics, and luxury. Though you have the money, you can’t get over as only one of its kind is been built.
Rolls-Royce Sweptail is designed with the specific orders from Yacht specialist. Rumors suggest that it took almost four years to build this car. The beautifully handcrafted interiors and the cases to keep laptops behind each door is interesting. This car from Rolls-Royce is no different from all exclusive cars as it reminds of a royal carriage. The large bonnet around covers a 6.6-liter V12 engine that can produce a speed of 150mph.
Standing in the third on our list of the most expensive car in the world, the Mercedes-Maybach Exelero. This spectacular high-performance four-seater sports car gets a V12 twin-turbo engine. It delivers an impressive speed of 213mph.
Considering the difficulty in producing this model, only two of these unique models are produced. Even the car producers admit this fact by saying that “the white carbon fiber used for the Trevita made the car extremely difficult and time-consuming to manufacture.” One of the prominent features of Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is its unique car fiber that sparkles like a diamond under sun rays.
Veneno built this car to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the company. This deadly car gets a 6.5-liter V12 engine along with a seven-speed single-clutch ISR automated manual transmission which can deliver 6.mph at 2.9 seconds. Initially, only three units were made and later upon orders the company built more six of them which had gained a huge resell rate.
Here is a road-legal version of the P1 GTR track-only model. It is claimed to be the epitome of hybrid insanity. McLaren P1 LM is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine that is paired with an electric motor and pumps out a total of 1000 horsepower. This is converted by a British Firm Lanzante who had the original McLaren P1. When compared to the McLaren P1 GTR, the LM version gets a modified rear wing and enlarged front splitter join that generates a 40 percent increased downforce. Its superb aerodynamics is something to talk about. Only five units of this model are built and all of them are sold off.
When talking about innovation, the first thing that runs our mind is Lykan Hyper sports. Derived from the UAE based company, the Lykan Hypersport gets headlights with 240 15-carat diamonds and LED blades of 420 15-carat diamonds. Customers can customize by altering gems or selecting from sapphires, rubies, yellow diamonds and more. It has a 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine.
Despite being the limited edition, the Bugatti Veyron Mansory Vivere has experienced upgrades for more than three times since 2005. It is one of the few cars that combines luxury with speed. Bugatti can reach a speed of 254mph using its 8litre W16 engine.
The first-ever supercar from Aston Martin that evokes connotations of power and honor is Aston Martin Valkyrie. It carries the trademark of having an all-carbon-fiber bodywork along with the striking aerodynamic exterior. The outstanding performance comes from a 6.5-liter V12 engine that is developed with Cosworth. As for now, the company planned to build only 150 units of this model and is expected to deliver soon.
Thanks to 4.5-liter V8 that lets the Ferrari Sergio Pininfarina produce 562 horsepower. Ferrari just built six of this edition that is sold to some hand-picked customers. This exclusive car is made of carbon with only two seats, no roof, windshield and side windows.
